Thirty years and 3,000,000 pounds later, Richard Simmons is still going strong. Using his unique wit,
passion and enthusiasm, Simmons, the nation’s most revered fitness expert, continues his crusade to
reach out to the masses, encouraging them to take control of their fitness destiny. Delivering a serious
message with his trademark humor, Simmons has helped millions of overweight men and women lose
more than 3,000,000 pounds by adopting sensible balanced eating programs and exercise regimes
that are energetic, fun and motivating.
Growing up in the French quarter of New Orleans, where lard was a food group and dessert
mandatory, Richard weighed 268 pounds when he graduated high school. An entrepreneur at a tender
age, Simmons sold pralines on New Orleans street corners where he learned to charm and entertain
his customers. After trying everything from bizarre diets to laxatives, Simmons took control of his
weight by adopting a lifestyle of balance, moderate eating and exercise. Simmons prevailed in his own
weight battle before relocating to Los Angeles in 1973. There was no significant fitness movement in
this country at the time, and to no avail, Simmons attempted to find a health club that wasn’t for people
who were already in shape. After traversing LA, and unable to find a facility welcoming people of all
shapes and sizes, his only alternative was to create that safe haven. In 1974, after consulting with
doctors and nutritionists to ensure the safety of a program tailored to the needs of everyone, from the
overweight and obese, to seniors and the physically challenged, a determined Simmons established
an innovative place where the overweight of the world were welcomed with open arms. This program
was met with instant success and continues today at SLIMMONS in Beverly Hills, where Richard still
teaches. While many of his legions of fans are overweight, he resonates with everyone, including
anyone who has just a few pounds to lose and wants to be fit.Simmons’ success as a fitness expert
and advocate led to numerous local and national television and radio appearances including a fouryear run on “General Hospital”, followed by his own nationally syndicated series, “The Richard
Simmons Show”. The show ran for four years and received several Emmy Awards.
Knowing that exercise and weight loss regimes must go hand-in hand, Simmons has created a series
of products that integrate the two components. Deal-A-Meal and the FoodMover help people keep
track of calories and portions. His 65 fitness videos, which have sold over 20 million copies, pair lively
music, with rockin’ routines and Simmons’ humorous banter and encouragement. With titles that
include “Sweatin’ to the Oldies”, “Dance Your Pants Off”, “Party Off the Pounds”, “Disco Sweat”, “Blast
Off the Pounds”, “Platinum Sweat”, and “Sit Tight” (a workout designed for people who cannot stand),
Richard offers a routine for everyone. As the author of nine books, including the New York Times Best
Seller, “Never Say Diet”, Richard released his autobiography, “Still Hungry-After All These Years” in
1998. He is also the author of three best-selling cookbooks. Throughout the years Richard still gets
his greatest satisfaction from reaching out and literally touching his students. Recognizing that his
audience spans all across America, Simmons averages some 250 days on tour each year. Whether
it’s a women’s expo, a nursing home, a high school, children’s hospital, shopping mall or corporate
seminar, Simmons considers himself fortunate to come face to face with hundreds of thousands of
people each year. Concerned about the financial impact of obesity in the workplace, several executive
organizations have recently invited Simmons to speak to their members about ways to encourage their
workers to lose weight.
Alarmed by the growing epidemic of childhood obesity, Richard helped launch the Fit Kids Bill in
Congress with the help of Congressmen Zach Wamp and Ron Kind. The effort is to ensure that
physical education classes are reinstated or remain a part of the curriculum in public schools. Richard
testified before a congressional committee and spoke of his own personal battle as an overweight
child. Still fighting the fitness battle with humor and enthusiasm, Simmons vows to never give up and
promises that he will continue his crusade until it’s time for him to teach classes at the Pearly Gates.
